Personal Growth Paper
This assignment is intended to push you out of your self-imposed limitations. Do something you would not have normally done (go to a Buddhist meditation, sing karaoke, start a conversation with a stranger, give a public speech, buy dinner for someone less fortunate, etc.) and write a brief 2-page typed (double space, 12 point font, Times New Roman) reaction about your experience. Try to think of something that is genuinely outside of your comfort zone or usual way of operating. Feel free to be creative, this is for you! In your paper, discuss the following;
a. What did you do and when did you do it (HAD to be during the semester!) In what ways was it different from how you usually operate?
b. What were your expectations prior to engaging in the experience? What elements of your experience were consistent with your observations? What elements were inconsistent (different from what you expected?).
c. What advice would you give to other people who are planning on taking on this experience or activity?
d. Do you plan on participating in this activity again? Why or why not?
e. What would you have done differently, if anything, I terms of your preparation for the activity?
